A film by Paul Ridout featuring the music ‘Slow Motion Blackbird’ taken from the album ‘Shift’ by Chris Hughes and produced by Chris Hughes & Paul Ridout.

In September 1967 Steve Reich wrote the score for ‘Slow Motion Sound’:-
“Very gradually slow down a recorded sound to many times its original length without changing its pitch or timbre at all”. He later remarked (1974) that it had remained a concept on paper because it was technologically impossible to realise.

By 1994 the technology had evolved thus allowing Chris and I to add this piece, along with Pendulum Music, to the collection that is ‘Shift’.
Reich’s intention had been to use a recording of children learning by rote. We referenced that with our recording of a violinist learning a blackbird’s song. The original violin phrase which doubles the blackbird’s song was played by Stuart Gordon, but, to this day the blackbird remains anonymous.
